Pathways' Workshop Packs

What are the Year 10 Pathways’ Workshop Packs?

Pathways have developed a range of fully resourced workshop packages for students to explore their further and higher education opportunities. All DIY delivery packs come with activity sheets, a lesson plan, and a PowerPoint. We recommend these workshops for ages 14 – 15, but a number of these activities are applicable to a wide range of young people. These workshops can be delivered in a number of ways. See the options under ‘location’ on the right-hand side of this page.

How will they meet Gatsby Benchmarks?

Using our Pathways’ workshop packs in line with the accompanying lesson plans will help fulfil certain Gatsby Benchmarks. See below for which Gatsby Benchmarks are achieved in particular workshops.

The Pathways’ Workshop Packs:
